British Science Week Ideas 2019

British Science Week 2019 is coming up on the 8-17th March, and we’ve got loads of ideas you can do either at home or at school, these ideas are either free or very cheap and what’s more, kids love them!

We love these 5 minute STEM activities from The Brick Castle – lots to choose from and easy to do short ideas!
